Post-colonial African people have witnessed undemocratic governments come and go-mostly thanks to nature''s course. During the OAU''s regime of 38 years will of the people have been forestalled countless times. The amendment to principle 4 (h) of the Constitutive Act to include legitimate order as one ground of intervention came with "good" news to the staggering democracy. Building on the claim that the right to democratic governance should attain international as well as regional legitimacy and for the violation of which should attract responsibility, the book argues that the international community of states should intervene militarily in blatant situations and if other mechanisms fail or are ineffective to ensure the right of citizens to democratic governance. The regional military intervention envisaged under the AUCA does not abridge the elements in Article 2 (4), namely, territorial integrity, political independence, and purposes of the UN Charter. The book should serve as an entry point to scholars interested in African democracy and military intervention debates.
